Lack of Interest [Suggestion] Limit Smilies to space-space

    "anything:)anything" <-- Currently gets parsed.


    What I suggest is to consider changing it to respect a space before it gets parsed.

    ":)" <-- don't parse
    " :) " <-- parse
    " :)" <-- parse
    ":) " <-- parse

    Ingenious, EQnoble and Nix like this.

    I think not parsing the smiley would be very confusing.

    On the subject of smilies, on my forum to make smilies look a bit nicer I modified the javascript to force a space after each smiley is inserted. For example instead of:

    :):):) it would be :) :) :)

    Yeah, not parsing it would just confuse users.

    A better option is having a [noparse] bbcode tag that disables parsing inside it.

    There is already on [plain] but still I agree with floris on this one if the smilie is directly between two:)words it is unlikely you want it parsed

    That is most likely, yes. The difficulty then becomes detecting words and punctuation, as they differ in different languages.
